Northam had revised his stance on the reopening of Northern Virginia, allowing Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax County, Loudoun, and Prince William County to begin their own Phase 1 plan on or about May 28. This means a slow opening phase for restaurants. But cafes, eateries, breweries, and restaurants citywide are persevering. Here’s an update from Bagel Uprising owners on how he's faring and what his latest plan is.
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packe
t, Chad Breckinridge, the owner of Bagel Uprising said, "We are deeply grateful for the support the bagel-eating community has shown us! We love being part of Alexandria – as an employer, as a neighborhood business, and as residents – and we’re inspired by the way this city has kept moving forward despite the crazy times.
"We’ve been very fortunate that a bagel shop can transition to pure takeout more easily than many other places. We’ve been able to keep our staff employed (thank goodness for all of them!), and we have our fingers and toes crossed that we’ve landed on an approach that will last however long the pandemic does.
"Diners in Alexandria have gone above and beyond to do their part to help restaurants as we fight to survive the economic and emotional strife of this pandemic. Every act of commerce feels like a gift of support. We are especially touched and proud of our staff who continue to work, with positive attitudes and grace, among new stiff sanitization guidelines, daily food delivery shortages, technological snafus, and angst about daily contact with the public. The challenges change day to day and they continue on without complaint."
